We already covered one move the Oakland Raiders need to make before training camp starts, but there is one more key transaction to do before the team gets together next month   Moore was a very good speed receiver and could make people miss in the open field The other move that should be made is to trade Denarius Moore. The fourth year wideout has been a starter since he entered the league, starting 35/41 games and nabbing 135 catches for 2054 yards and 17 touchdowns. His speed is his key mark, averaging almost 16 yards per catch. However his inconsistency has held him back from elite levels. He struggles with drops and hot reads, which have put him in the coach’s doghouse. Given their depth among the wideouts, Moore is a luxury. Last season he began the year as the number one wideout, but quickly fell behind Rod Streater, who developed into the best receiving threat. Given Andre Holmes’s late season ascent and Jame Jones’ aquisition in the offseason, Moore is unlikely to see even half the playing time he has over the past three seasons.   Moore is still only 25 with plenty of upside Given his production and speed, he would make a nice trade target for a receiver needy team. Someone like the Carolina Panthers, who have nothing but a raw rookie, aging slot receivers, and untested practice squad to throw to, Moore is a perfect option. Given his propensity for trading, Reggie McKenzie will likely seek a 6th round pick, since Moore is young, has proven talent, and has good starting experience. It may seem silly to send off a starting receiver, but the Raiders would be wasting his talents and letting him waste the final year of his rookie contract on the bench, where he could easily leave the team for no compensation. With Moore gone, it allows for other young Raiders receivers to fill out the depth and contribute. Juron Criner has been catching everything and presents a solid posession threat. Brice Butler still has room to grow. Mike Davis, the undrafted rookie from Texas could develop into a solid deep threat. While keeping a starting caliber receiver around as a depth piece may seem like a smart move, its best to let him move on to further his career, but also gain some compensation in return.
